Euronews: Brussels, my love? Is Europe ready for Trump in the White House?

06 April 2024

We were joined by Ian Bond, deputy director of the CER who warned that Trump was "subservient" to Putin - which is a threat to America's European allies. "We saw in the first Trump term that Trump was totally subservient to Putin. And I think Putin would love to be able to exploit that again."

Bond went on to remind us that "Trump was was presented with an opportunity to say that America's intelligence agencies had shown that Russia had attacked America's democratic processes. And he basically said, President Putin assured me that he hadn't done that, and I have no reason to doubt him."
